Well, what a brilliant set of RAJAR results for commercial radio! The highest ever reach figures, strong year on year growth for the national commercial stations and networks, and record results for the UK’s only national commercial speech station – talkSPORT.
There will no doubt be a few bottles of bubbly open over at Leicester Square today as the team over at Global celebrates strong results for both Heart London and Capital London. Capital have hit their highest reach in more than six years and the Johnny and Lisa breakfast show again rules the airwaves, even beating Radio 1’s Chris Moyles (by 100,000).
In the digital world Jazz FM have achieved their highest ever figures of 495,000 and the Kiss Network (which includes the FM stations) has also performed well bringing in over 4 million listeners. As a whole Digital Radio listening has performed well, now achieving a 26.5% share and a 43.1% weekly reach. And, with 38% of people now claiming to have a DAB set at home Digital Radio UK will be hoping these figures will continue to grow.
